Charles P. Segal Student Travel and Research Fellowships
Department fellowships are available for Classics concentrators (sophomores and juniors only) and Classics graduate students to pursue research related to the discipline. The maximum award is $4,000, with preference given to first-time applicants.
Research is usually conducted in the summer, and is often preliminary to a senior thesis for undergraduates or related to advanced projects for graduate students. Recipients write about their experiences for the Department's newsletter, Nota Bene. Students can peruse previous issues for examples of past projects.
Applications require a statement of purpose, a detailed budget, and two letters of recommendation from faculty or graduate student instructors (consisting of at least one substantial paragraph).
Fellowships for Graduate Students
In addition to the financial aid allocated annually by the Department through the Graduate School's Office of Financial Aid, there are many fellowships, both internal and external, for travel and research for which graduate students can compete. Information about many of these fellowships and their deadlines has been compiled by the Graduate School into two books issued annually which are available in the Graduate Lounge. Notices and flyers sent to us by the Graduate School and outside agencies are posted on the Department bulletin boards. See also the website of the Fellowships Office.
